"I organise events that bring people together, because I believe that in a world full of conflict and technology there is an increasing need for dialogue. Through my social art practice, I advocate face-to-face interaction, away from the app-and-screen-culture that we are creating. I use collaborative drawing to facilitate these workshops, because it offers a very different and exciting method of communication. Drawing together helps to break the ice and enables everyone to contribute. My aim is to create a sense of community through this shared experience. Furthermore, I want to create a space for critical thinking in order to achieve a deeper understanding of diverse perspectives. By sharing stories and insights, we gain greater empathy. I call this gaining visual agency."
Visual Agency facilitate workshops and courses that stimulate dialogue, creative thinking and community-building through visual communication. Collaborative drawing helps to engage with others and to discuss complex societal, political and cultural issues. Whether it's team-building, networking or educational sessions, Visual Agency is about stimulating curiosity, creativity and collaboration.
